Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding

Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding

We are excited about this months newsletter from Reflection Riding! We have very much enjoyed being a part of the Reflection Riding family and sharing our fantastic Swincars with our guests at their beautiful arboretum. Check out the snippet from the newsletter below to see Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding!

“Reflection Riding’s founder John Chambliss created “the Riding” at the height of America’s car culture and marketed the place as a drive-through roadside attraction. Today, you can enjoy a similar experience in a Swincar e-Spider, through our partnership with Adventure Sports Innovation. These electrically powered off-road vehicles provide a very unique driving experience, with a comfortable and stable ride. Swincar e-Spiders make almost no sound, run entirely on electricity and have a very light footprint when it comes to wearing down the roads and causing potholes. With no windshield or enclosed cabin, they’re also the best way (aside from on foot) to see the property and experience the outdoors while getting a view of the entire Reflection Riding loop. Plus, ASI is delighted to work with guests who may have mobility challenges to explore the full park. 

Currently, all Swincar tours are led by a guide from Adventure Sports Innovation. If you meet a Swincar tour while hiking at Reflection Riding, feel free to say hello to fellow explorers! Tour participants will keep an eye out for pedestrians and will try not to startle you as they quietly navigate the campus.Contact us to book a tour as a team-building activity, or book a trip for your family or friends. Tours are typically offered Wednesday-Sunday at 1:30 and 3:30.”

We hope you enjoyed reading about us, and we are looking forward to many more adventures in the future! Be sure to check back for more updates about Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding in the future!

Mobility Demo Day

Mobility Demo Day

In mid-March Swincar USA held our second ever Swincar Mobility Demo Day at Morrow Park Farms in Reynolds, GA. Our goal was to get disabled men and women from the Atlanta Area out and riding with complimentary 30-minute excursions on the farm’s miles of trails. We had a fantastic time and every rider that signed up got to drive on some beautiful and exciting terrain!

One of the many wonderful features of our Swincars is their accessibility. Swincars are completely hand operated and do not require use of the driver’s legs or feet. This makes for a fun and exciting off road vehicle for users of all abilities. Swincars are also incredibly safe to drive and quite simple to learn!

Overall, it was a fun and exciting mobility demo day! We can’t wait for many more to come in the future. Check our video highlights below, and keep an eye out for announcements regarding future Mobility Demo opportunities!   If you know of an organization that might like to host such a demo, please let us know!  

For more information about options for adaptive Swincar drivers, check out our mobility webpage.

Try before you buy: From banjos to kayaks to chickens, here are five things you didn’t know you could rent in Chattanooga

If you’ve ever planned a wedding, gone to prom or wowed the guests at a children’s birthday party, you’re probably aware of the abundance of items you can rent to make an event a success — everything from tables and chairs to tuxes and limos to bouncy houses and petting zoos.

But that’s not all you can rent in Chattanooga. With the coronavirus still whittling large gatherings off our social calendars, we went in search of some short-term rentals that can entertain us during isolation. These adopt-a-hobbies are ideal for no-guilt trial runs to see if your new pursuits have long-term potential.

Here are five ideas for rentable activities that can keep you occupied at home during your downtime or that you can enjoy while remaining socially distanced. Suppliers featured here are examples of what you might find. Policies will vary depending on where you shop.

4. Swincars

Here’s a contraption you’ve likely not seen before: the Swincar e-Spider, an electric, four-wheel-drive quadricycle resembling something between a dune buggy and a Model T. Easily able to navigate all kinds of terrain, the Swincar matches its extreme off-road capabilities with a light environmental impact and silent operation.

In Chattanooga, the Swincar is available at Adventure Sports Innovation on River Street, a company that specializes in high-tech outdoor experiences. When you book an outing, ASI will deliver your Swincar to Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center for a 60- or 90-minute tour within the 317-acre property.

Mark McKnight, president and CEO at Reflection Riding, says ASI’s CEOs and co-founders Carolina Eiris Molloy and Patrick J. Molloy reached out to him in 2018 with the “idea of letting people try out these crazy toys you might see on YouTube but never run into in day-to-day life.”

The buggies are ideal for exploring the 15 miles of trails at Reflection Riding, says McKnight.

“They allow you to see a lot more of the terrain and easily move across the terrain, especially as a way for people with disabilities to get out onto the trails,” he says. “They’re really low-impact — not like a four-wheeler where you’re tearing up the trails. They’re very low-impact and very quiet.”

Rental fees range from $109 to $250, which includes a $10 donation to Reflection Riding.

Other rentals available through ASI are electric bikes and scooters, hoverboards, hovershoes, Segways, electric unicycles and water bikes.

“What to do Safely in Chattanooga” appeared in Chicago GoPride after Jerry Nunn traveled to the Scenic City and got to experience several key attractions. Click here for the full article. 

Heading to Hamilton County to visit Chattanooga, Tennessee can be a long and windy road, but the uphill battle is certainly worth it. This southeastern city in Tennessee runs along the Appalachian Mountains with unbelievable natural wonder to take in, especially when the leaves change color in the fall.

There are numerous outdoor excursions to be enjoyed in Chattanooga these days, making this the perfect time to come visit. One of the best and most original experiences to try is a vehicle called the Swincar at Adventure Sports Innovation. This French made electric car allows the driver to use hand controls and climb over rough terrain with a patient, personal guide leading the winding way.
